Elena Gaburro

About me

Elena Gaburro I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Civil Environmental and Mechanical Engineering (DICAM) of the University of Trento in Italy.

My research focuses on the development of new Finite Volume and Discontinous Galerkin schemes of arbitrary high order, both in space and in time, for the solution of nonlinear hyperbolic systems in a Lagrangian framework.
My research topics include: path-conservative well balanced schemes for nonconservative hyperbolic equations, angular momentum preserving strategies, direct Arbitrary-Lagrangian-Eulerian schemes, nonconforming sliding lines techniques, Voronoi regenerating meshes with topology change.
Applications concern: Shallow Water and multiphase flows, Euler equations of gasdynamics, magnetohydrodynamics, general relativity and continuum mechanics.

I have a PhD in Mathematics and I won a Marie Curie MSCA-ITN grant under the H2020 EU project ModCompShock.

I have been visiting researcher at LJLL, UPMC-Paris VI, France (4 months),
at the University of Wuerzburg, Germany (3 month)
and in the EDANYA group, University of Malaga, Spain (8 months).

I speak Italian, English, French and Spanish.

I have been awarded by GIMC/AIMETA as the Best PhD Thesis in Computational Fluid Mechanics in Italy (2018),
and I am a finalist for the ECCOMAS PhD Awards 2018.
